I got a 2 gallon bucket to help me do water changes on my 10 gallon. I had maybe .25ish, but did a 40 % just in case. We have over cast skies today and I like reading my API results in the sun. I plan on doing another filter squeeze this weekend, just to speed it up. The little platy I thought would make it with clean water and no over crowding in the tank, died. Thats most likely where the .25 came from.

took the 130 mile round trip to town to run few errands ,,
after I got done I stopped in at aqua-mart
wasn't planing on buying anything just look , since I just made a big $300.+ order with reefs2go , Well that didn't happen came across 3 real nice coral rocks around 4-5 inches each full of goodies , also found a sweet toad stool leather , they wanted $50.each for the 3 rocks and $20. for the toad stool $170. total , well I made a good show that I was upset I didn't have enough $$$ , guy said tell you what since you are a good regular customer I'll make you a great deal , well you guessed it it was a great deal he said I'll take what ever you have in your pocketgot it all for $65. , now how could I turn that down , he didn't know I had $300 in my other pocket
well got home to find he even added 2 small frags for free , 1 zoa and a small star polyp they usually sell them for $15 each .

ok to the goodies

this rock has a few different zoa's and a yellow sponge can't wait for it to fully open



and to the right small star polyp I got for free it's not open yet

this one has a kenya tree some zoa's and a red shroom
and there's my toad stool to the rear



this is the free zoa frag I got



last but not least the last zoa rock right above my green shrooms theres 5 or 6 different types can't wait till it opens fully



my mandarin is munching on all the pods that came on rock its loaded

when I get my goodie box from reefs2go I'll add more picts of that stuff

now did I score or what????

after it all opens full I'll figure out exactly what each type the zoa's are

oh one last pict little video

of the whole tank (turn sound off all you'll hear is the fan buzzing didn't know how to edit out sound ) NO that's not the pumps running lol if it was I'd go nuts

think if you follow link to video you can also see the tank's progress through photo bucket

Wednesday is water change day. Added root tabs to the 29. Found 2 baby java ferns tangled in my hornwort, wiped off some algae and discovered one of my corkscrew vals is about at the waterline.
